Joburg and Pretoria... not all its hyped up to be

... and some terribly ugly government buildings. As we arrived at her place I met her black Labrador Duke who reminded me so much of Cooper it made me feel a bit homesick, and he pretty much never left my side whenever I was there. Candices parents arrived home pretty much exactly as we got there, and we said our hellos and I got settled in and unpacked. It was early afternoon and we decided to start cooking dinner early as we had a big night ahead of us, apparently we ...

Boeremark as sellers

... the market through sticky mud. Enjoyed walking around being observers. Pancakes hot off the stove to go with some coffee at 4:30am. I really enjoy this market as it provides access to fresh farm produce like vegetables, meat, biscuits, biltong, plants and then the vetkoeks, koeksisters and muffins.

There was interesting conversation and rugby anecdotes with a charity auction at the end. The Springbok jersey did well at R4,000 but JK and Sean swung into action with two AB jerseys going for R12,000 and R14,000. It was nice to see that even a room of ...

... tastefully decorated using nice conventional wooden furniture - ikea style. Its bright inside, and cheerful to be in. I saw the sun shining in my barbecue area until it set - so I can imagine sat out there around a big table with friends (HINT HINT). Ignoring the brick wall and enclosed surroundings its better than nothing - I am lucky to have all this space!!

Everything is brand new but I cleaned it all yesterday. Oven is a silly industrial sized thing - as is the ...
